Advice regarding diet & lifestyle...
today is day 7 for me and I have lost 13lbs so far EEEK!! That is so cool. I am enjoying it my skin is fab I feel fab however.
I am thinking about stopping the diet for a little bit :( I would just like some advice from other people so that I don't end up regretting the decision!
I am gutted to do it because being slim by June ish is such an exciting prospect however at the end of the month I am relocating 200+ miles away from home. Thus leaving my family, friends and colleagues. A lot of my friends want to go out for some food and stuff (I am not a big drinker really anyway.) And I feel really bad having to say "Nope cos' I am doing a diet" Yes they would understand and stuff but I am probs going to see these guys once a year from now on and at work I am having a leaving party and a few people want to go out for meals and stuff too.
Then when I move I need to make new friends and be as social as possible, going to the gym, zumba, bokwa ect ect I need to get out there to start a life for myself and fit in to my new job (where ever I have started a few pub lunches have happened.)
I have considered this a lot and think that I am making the right decision to stop for a little while whilst all the changes happen and I settle in and then continue after that when people won't foresee me as being "boring" they will understand I just don't want to be fat :confused:
I considered continuing the diet and making healthy protein rich choices when going out for food ie chicken salads no dressing ect but I don't see the point in paying for this diet and cheating on it thus making it harder for me in the long run.
Most of me does not want to stop but I am starting to think for the time being it may be a sensible choice.
Anyone offer some advice or share how you deal with things like this if you have been in a similar situation?
I am NOT going to come off this and start eating like a fatty again I am really determined to keep losing and then start again when I am settled.
Help please :(xx
